Business Climate and Opportunities
The Calgary Airport Authority is a not-for-profit, non-share capital corporation, responsible for the management, maintenance and development of the Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Springbank Airport (YBW), under long-term lease from the Government of Canada.
In 2016, YYC welcomed nearly 16 million passengers, maintaining its status as one of Canada’s busiest airports. YYC also continues to be the leading air cargo hub in the province of Alberta. Last year, cargo tonnage moved through the airport totaled more than 137,000 tonnes, representing more than three-quarters of all air cargo moved in the province.
With more than 250 passenger flights per day and service to 80 non-stop destinations, YYC is well positioned as Alberta’s gateway to the world.
The airport currently contributes approximately $8 billion to the city's GDP (about 10 per cent of the economy) and supports 48,000 jobs. The future growth and development of YYC will only increase YYC’s position as an important economic partner and contributor to Calgary's continued development as a city.
YYC, it starts here.
